Is vb6 backward compatible?

Can you use those vb6 projects, forms, etc. in vb5?

Yes.  You will get some error messages about class modules (and possibly other project settings), but just click on OK and they'll load fine.  I switched my app to VB6 (very large) and reverted back to VB5SP3 because of bugs.  It was a piece of cake.

Not all of VB6 is backward compatible.  if you use the new Source Safe you can't open your project in VB5.

Try loading a VB5 project that used the common controls into VB6!

VB6 is not backward compatible.  I do not think Microsoft had the intention to make it backward compatible.  I don't want to exclude the possibility that some VB6 projects might be loaded into VB5 with very little modifications, but it is not compatible.  Also, people have found some bugs with VB6 and a service pack is expected pretty soon.
